Sastre relishes facing Armstrong in Giro

Recommended Posts

STRASBOURG, France (AP)—Tour de France champion Carlos Sastre will be going head-to-head with Lance Armstrong at the Giro d’Italia next year.


With Armstrong still undecided on competing in the Tour, the Giro guarantees at least one major race featuring both the reigning Tour champion and the seven-time winner.


Sastre had previously been uncommitted on the Giro.


“The Giro d’Italia will be my first important goal. I will be ready for the start,” the Spaniard said in an interview Wednesday with The Associated Press.


Sastre said he would use the Giro as more than just a warmup for the defense of his Tour title.


“If I go to the Giro it is not just for training,” he said.
